  • Nimbus Boats

    It’s full speed ahead for leisure craft production at Nimbus Produktion i Visby AB, a boat builder on the island of Gotland, Sweden. Demand skyrocketed, so boat building in its factory is continuously streamlined to meet production demands. One efficiency effort involved installation of Åkerströms’ remote-control system for overhead cranes. Using portable, wireless radio transmitters, builders hoist heavy parts while working and moving freely around the boat. This enables quick, safe work. Builders who run the system now have full control over clumsy, heavy boat parts.

  • Oskarshamnsverket

    Right at the top of the reactor building at Oskarshamn 3 there is a Remotus system. It serves amongst other things to lift the lid off the reactor containment and also the lid off the reactor tank. The fuel is changed once a year in this fashion. The Remotus is also used to move the 80-tonne conveyor container used to remove the spent nuclear fuel.
    Safety at the plant is rigorous. Both as regards nuclear technology and physical protection. “There are multiple safety systems which are independent of each other. It’s rather like braces as well as a belt”, recounts Jan Petrini, deputy information chief at OKG. “The staff responsible for operation are highly experienced and very well trained”.

  • Quality for underground movement

    Anyone who imagines that a mine is a tough environment is ...
    absolutely right. Robert Larsson is functional manager at LKAB that has facilities in Malmberget and Kiruna in northern Sweden.
    Larsson confirms: “Sure, working underground is often challenging. It’s hot and dirty. Industrial environments like the pelleting plant are both hot and wet. And it can be really cold outside in the winter. Those circumstances place high demands on the machines.”
